    Going to spend the next couple weeks getting things together to be as prepared as I can be. More nervous about the people than the preperation.

    Haha. I remember that weird offer with Manchester.

    Eh, clubs are nothing special. Loads of people dancing to really loud music pretty much. By the time you get out, you'll be deaf, like you won't be able to hear anyone (so you communicate by shouting and look weird).

    I wonder if universities have a vacuum cleaner and ironing boards at student accommodation. I don't want to bring a dyson...

    GL, I've gone for self-catered. However, I can cook decently. Can't cook steaks and that, but pasta = .
    yh I think uni halls so provide an iron board and most have cleaners that come like maybe once a week or so but haven't thought about a hoover to clean my own room lol but I guess there might be a store cupboard with a hoover hmmm haha and yh If i were self catered I would be consuming a LOT of pasta and boiling lots of vegetables but it would annoy me so I'm happy to pay more for someone else to cook me food and then i don't have to worry about washing up lol

    I'm moving house in a couple weeks, going halfway across the country and I'm barely prepared for that. Never mind moving a little more than that distance back across the country to go to uni which will be a couple weeks after I move..

    (I was originally gonna be 1-2 hours from home....its more like 5 now)

    My last uni had an ironing board, iron and Hoover and you could use the Hoover in your room as well as communal area. And they have cleaners who aren't really cleaners 😂 at mine they wouldn't clean your kitchen if it wasn't already clean! They would mop the floor and leave an angry note about how you needed to clean up and take out the recycling (not general rubbish) to encourage us to recycle.

    Was just joking but I'm sure the drunk bit has some truth to it given the new found freedom uni students have

    My University is only 2 hours away so I'm gonna be taking quite a bit with me.

    Kitchen stuff, bathroom stuff, bedding, quilt/pillows etc, TV, Xbox, DVDs, plush/figures, clothes, stationary stuff, posters, lamp, clock, week worth of food/hygiene and cleaning items etc.

    If you only have a suit case spare then I'd suggest bringing just clothes, your favourite gadgets etc and any items that remind you of home. As everything else can pretty much be bought at shops near the University.

    These few weeks need to hurry up, I wanna start already!

    Why are you bringing a TV?:lol: You'll have to pay the TV licence whilst you're there, you know.

    The drunk bit has too much truth to it! 😂
    Most people were drinking everyday during freshers at my last uni but most calm down after freshers.. Although there's always one who manages to keep it up all year and will probably get better grades than you too! LOL

    Which area of Kent are you from? UoK Canterbury campus is pretty good - the accommodation looks terrible though. I'm preferring Brunel atm over it but Kent is still strongly pushing for the place of firm choice.

    I'm absolutely raring to go for uni. Can't wait to start! However I left my old full time job in order to go to summer school in order to meet my conditions. I assumed I'd find a part-time really easily however it hasn't quite worked out like that. I'm a mature student with my own flat so I'm kinda starting to feel a little uncomfortable with the situation.
